Michelle Branch‘s marriage wasn’t all she wanted: The musician has split from her husband of more than a decade.

Branch, 31, filed for divorce from Teddy Landau, 50, on Feb. 9, citing irreconcilable differences, according to the court document obtained by PEOPLE. The couple separated in January 2014.

The “Everywhere” singer married Landau, her former bassist, in May 2004 in Mexico.

“My relationship had a very rocky start,” Branch told PEOPLE of Landau in 2006. “My parents hated the idea – and now love him, of course. My dad never wanted me to be with a musician. I mean, how unrealistic is that? I’m not going to fall for an accountant! And when he found out he was closer in age to my husband than I was, he got very nervous.”

The pair have one child, Owen Isabelle, 9, and are seeking joint custody.
